Situated near Karol Bagh neighbourhood in Delhi, Bhuli Bhatiyari ka Mahal is a ruined fort cum gateway structure that was originally built as a hunting lodge by Feroz Shah Tughlaq in the 14th century. Reverberating with an eerie silence and a spooky ambiance, the fort is infamous for its haunted stories and tales of paranormal activity that may be witnessed here, especially during the nights. To top that, there are no locks or chains on the gate but only a warning sign that says not to come here after sunset.
Nestled in between a dense forest, the monument is a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). Surrounded by lush greenery and cooing of peacocks, there is not a lot to explore in the monument except two courtyards and few dilapidated rooms. However, the place is still a curious attraction and every day a lot of youngsters come here to explore the place and to verify the haunted tales. During the day time, you can also find a guard here who can satiate your curiosity.
The architecture of Bhuli Bhatiyari ka Mahal resembles another monument - Malcha Mahal - built by the Tughlaq Dynasty. The fort has two entrances and the facade is protected by bastions like in a fort. As you enter the dilapidated rubble masonry gate, opens to a courtyard. The other cobbled gate also leads to the same. On the side, there are rooms which were built by the emperor and a flight of stairs leading to a semi circular structure. There is also a newly made toilet in a corner that was built by Delhi Tourism in order to promote tourism. But yes, that didn’t turn out too well!
